“This is our time. Our moment. We knew it would finally happen for us one day, and now this is it. The answer to all our problems is on the other side of this door.”

Two brothers, Ted and Sid wait for the rain, they dream of the rain, they can almost taste the rain. Holed up in their derelict attic room they wait – days, weeks, months, who knows how long it’s been? The trees have turned to dust, their memories are faded, and Ted can’t find his trousers.

Only their absurd questions of life, and ingenious games of survival will keep them from destroying each other whilst they desperately wait for a single drop of rain to fall into their little metal bucket. A darkly comic, and deeply moving look at life when forced into the impossible. Is any of it even real? All Ted and Sid know is that waiting is exhausting.
